Shell Earrings
Artist: Frank Mestes


These earrings have been hand-made and cut from the shells of the Big Sioux River. They also have dentalium shells in the center of the shell. They measure 1 W x 2 H inches on french wires.

Dentalium shells are small tubular mollusks that look like little elephant tusks. There are over 300 species of dentalium, but the species most used by American Indians were Dentalium (Antalis) Pretiosum which are found along the northwest coast of North America. They have been used ornamentally as beads, money and symbols of wealth for thousands of years and many varieties can be found around the world.
